 Dear Noel,
Following Ruedenberg, the simple answer is electrons kinetic energy. For more details look at K. Ruedenberg, Reviews of Modern Physics, 34(2):326-376, (1962) and M.S. Gordon, J.H.Jensen, Theoretical Chemistry Accounts, 103:248-251, (2000)
There are excellent articles and quite informative. Any discussion of the fundamental concept of bonding is useful for better chemistry understanding. Therefore, I would like to solicit any other similar articles, books, etc. that discuss bonding and the like.
 Thank you,
